Bethenny Frankel, Genius, Is Making Pot That Won’t Give You Munchies

The greatest struggle in my life is the desire to not eat after 9:00 p.m. (as recommended by nutritionists, doctors, and that one ex-boyfriend who dumped me for "having the penchant to become chubby one day") -- a healthy life habit that is a complete antithesis to my other healthy life habit: smoking a j…

Grandmas Smoke Weed, Play “Cards Against Humanity For The First Time

Are Women The New Face Of Marijuana Use?

What comes to mind when you picture someone who uses marijuana? For many it's the stereotypical image of a lazy, spacey, and possibly dirty stoner who listens to The Grateful Dead, prefers hemp as their jewelry of choice, and is always good for a laugh or two.

Voting Results On Ballot Measures Shows There’s Still Hope For This Country

So Republicans now control the House and the Senate, and they defeated Democratic gubernatorial candidates in Maryland, Maine, Massachussetts, and (sigh) Illinois, and so control the majority of gubernatorial offices in the U.S. Don’t freak out too much; let’s be honest, politicians’ inability to care about their constituencies knows no political party.

Frisky Rant: I Don’t Understand Why You People Smoke Pot

One of the more ridiculous conversations I've had in my life -- and I've had many -- was about smoking pot. One of my friends at work told me he'd been smoking and driving and got pulled over for a broken tail light and got paranoid, and I guess I was supposed to laugh, but…

Roll Yourself A Joint And Watch “Cosmos” On Weed
